Im thinking about buying a diesel tractor, and saw this one on CL. I called the guy, it doesn't come with any attachments, and hours are unknown.

He also said he bought it to power a water pump, and it didn't have enough for the pump, but runs good. He said he would move a little on it, but not having any attachments, the price seems high to me.

Any price suggestions?

The price does seem a little bit high,the attachments for these are a little hard to find(plows,decks,etc)and ussually bring higher dollars than others do,they are tough machines

It's an early (78-80) G152. He's way off on the price, imo.

It doesn't have the auxiliary hydraulics kit. It doesn't have the front/mid pto kit, and that will be hard to find because the two cylinder kit is different from the kit used on the 3 cylinder models.

What you have there is a bare tractor with a 3 point and a rear pto. If you have a use for a tractor to use rear Cat 1 attachments, it might be worth looking at. Any Cat 1 540 pto tiller will work on that.

A pto kit runs over $200. I've never seen an auxiliary hydraulic kit parted out for sale.

I paid $1,800 for a G152 with an Iseki factory tiller, Bolens 48" mmm, and a Bolens 42" single stage blower.

I see you are in wisconsin, that price seems pretty high considering the tractors available in our area right now. Check CL there are a number of better deals including a really nice red e and a power king that I would love to own. Good luck.

Couldn't wash it for pictures?  Looks like it was pulled from bottom of a Pond and let dry. That mud is REALLY on there, heh!  Have to buy it with Dirty Money?

I'm also in the "overpriced camp".

 

I paid 2300 last fall for the newer 3 cyl version, w, 48" mmm and 3' back blade, and in nice condition, hrs unknown (non working hm)

 

I'm not a fan of the 2 cylinder engine which this is, and is it even a Bolens? with those paddy tires and no ft pto drive it could be a Iseki gray market tractor.

Could buy a small farm tractor around here for that money, guess it depends what you are going to use it for. Small areas, and such.

I think that is close. DEPENDING ON YOUR BEING ABLE TO START IT COLD AND ALL GEARS RUN OUT FINE.

That's a rice paddy tractor, pretty sure it's a gray market rig, I looked at one like it that didn't start well cold. He was asking $1800 with a 4' box blade, and 4' mower. I passed, just too much for too little.
